May 28 - ssnotime141 - Flying High and Proud Color Challenge - This marks the beginning of Memorial Day Weekend in the USA, a time we remember and honor those who have so bravely and proudly served our country. Realizing we have blog readers that span the world, today our challenge is to make a card or any project using the colors in your country's flag. The project can be patriotic in nature, but it's not necessary. PLEASE when you upload your creation, tell us your country and your flag's colors. It'll be fun to see how many different countries we see!!!
I was looking at my MFT scalloped dies and thought they might work to make red, white, and blue bunting for my card. And I was right--I love how it turned out! The card construction is simple so I won't bore you with details, but I just cut my scalloped layers (the bottom layer is the Scalloped Scallop die and the others are the Jumbo Scallop (which seems to be out of stock at the moment) and punched out some little stars. The sentiment was computer generated and I embossed the top part with a my Stars folder.
NOW! MFT is introducing some fabulous new dies in June and you can see some samples using them if you'll head over to Kim's blog at 11:00am EDT this morning--she'll have a list of the DT members showing the new dies. But here's a little sneak at them now:
Die-namics Fresh Cut Grass (I'll have a card using this die to show you on Sunday)So, what do you think? Totally awesome, right?! Wait until you see them in action!!!
So, now it's your turn. Come along and play and take us up on the challenge--we'd love to see what you come up with. If you do, be sure to leave the link to your project on Sharon's blog using Mr. Linky. Please use the keyword ssnotime141 if you upload to a public forum. And don't forget to check out Sharon's fabulous sample and also the great designs from the Stamp Simply team and leave 'em some love!
